    The Rotalux softbox is the best of its category

    The Rotalux is easy to set up, lightweight and unlike many other softboxes, fold down just like an umbrella and can be easily stored in the carrying bag. The quality of light is outstanding because of the fabric material and the internal diffuser provides the softest and most even light possible.

    The optional deflector set takes advantage of the unique Elinchrom central shaft to modify the softness or hardness and the colour like no other softbox system. 

    Last but not least, optional grids are available for each size and shape of the Rotalux range allowing you to control and reduce the spread of light.

    Features

    • Excellent quality of the diffusing and reflecting fabric.
    • Second internal diffuser.
    • Included carrying bag.
    • Grey rip piping with professional finish.
    • Heavy-duty locking with wing nut.
